Trauma and DEI-Informed Training to Improve Response and Intervention
Your Campus Police force and frontline responders like Residence Life staff, Coaches, Faculty, Staff, and Advisors are invaluable resources on your campus. To be especially effective, a university-wide commitment to the values of trauma-informed practices that have an Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (I.D.E.A.) lens includes training for officers and frontline responders to improve their knowledge and increase their comfort in responding to a variety of situations.
Our expert presenter shares her national experience in Psychological First Aid and Crisis Intervention Team Training and highlights the signs of distress, crisis and trauma-informed de-escalation strategies through an I.D.E.A. lens. This interactive webinar includes case studies to help your campus police and frontline responders put core tenants of trauma-informed care into practice on your campus.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Implement a trauma-informed approach to working with campus community members in crisis – ensure that response teams are trained, experienced, and honor a victim’s rights while still providing essential support to that individual.
- Recognize early warning signs of individuals in distress or a student experiencing an immediate crisis reaction — provide the necessary training and tools to responding officers to assist in addressing the immediate need and de-escalate disruptive and potentially dangerous behaviors.
- Identify the various types of traumas that students can experience and its impact on their physical and cognitive abilities — understand these components to be able to effectively assist and intervene using core tenants of trauma-informed care to help students remain engaged in the learning community and persist to graduation.
- Create a campus police force and campus response team that utilizes a trauma-informed IDEA lens when interacting with the campus community — increase understanding of the impact of those who have experienced trauma – through an inclusion, diversity, equity and access lens so you can provide physical, psychological, and emotional safety to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.
- Recognize the changing profile of college students who have experienced trauma and its impact on their mental health — have clear communication policies in place to report any concern and de-escalate a situation before it becomes a full-blown crisis.
